Alistair Cronk is a 43-year-old been there, done that kind of guy. Alistair started his sporting career at the age of 12 in 1989 and has been competing in races ever since, from road running, cycling, mountain biking, triathlon, duathlon, canoeing to off road racing on a quad and adventure racing. Alistair has achieved provincial colours and represented his province on a number of occasions. To sum it up, Alistair knows what it is like to suffer, he understands athletes and knows what they want.
In later years Alistair has turned to commentary at races. He is well-known and much-loved at Gauteng events because he knows the athletes, understands them and can relate to them. With his wicked sense of humour, Al keeps the crowds entertained throughout any event. Alistair has a passion for endurance sports and he loves to push his body to the limit, always looking for new and exciting challenges, both on and off the field.
Alistair is a provincial athlete and ex Pro-Am Cyclist who has completed 11 Comrades Marathons with his best time at 8:42; 500km of multiday adventure racing, some as team captain and navigator; 3 Sani2C races; 2 Dusi2C races and the Barbeserspan 500km off-road race.
